The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. West Indies batsman Shai Hope, who was one the leading ODI run-scorers in 2019, wished everyone on new year. Meanwhile, in Australia, the bush-fire smoke has been wreaking havoc. One of the BBL matches was also called off due to the toxic atmosphere. Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian cricketer, prayed for the ones, affected in the incident. Thisara Perera, the Sri Lankan all-rounder, has returned to play the 2019-20 edition of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Kevin Pietersen posted a video on Instagram where he was seen, enjoying at a beach. On Wednesday, January 1, Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya got engaged to Serbian actress Natasa Stankovic. After the auspicious moment, Krunal Pandya welcomed the couple to the family. Rahmat Shah, the Afghanistan batsman., shared a picture where he was embracing the bliss of snowfall in Kabul. Yesterday, Mohammad Nabi turned 35 and Qais Ahmed wished the veteran on the occasion. Ahmed is currently a part of the Hobart Hurricanes in the 2019-20 Big Bash League (BBL).
Nabi is with the Rangpur Rangers in the BPL. Cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra picked the Test team of the decade. Brisbane Heat lost to the Perth Scorchers and head coach Darren Lehmann hopes for his team to make a strong comeback. The Heat are next scheduled to play against the Hurricanes on Friday. Hasan Ali didn’t have the best of journeys in 2019. The Pakistan speedster believes in hard work, rather than luck.

I just saw this pic and I’m still in shock. When we go out to play tomorrow, not just the Australian team, but New Zealand as well, we never forget how privileged we are to live where we do and to do what we do. My heart, my family's heart, are with you. These fires are beyond words. To every Firefighter, volunteer to every family, we are with you. You are the real heroes. You do us proud.

“Whoever invented the leg-byes rule would have been a poor batsman himself! Runs are meant to come off the bat, I mean come on don’t they!” – Mark Waugh is nailing it commentating in a Big Bash game 😂👏🏼
